romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it eas

of reaganism in this speech. remember, he once said that ronald reagan was historically consequential in a way that bill clinton was not. and what obama meant is that obama had changed the ideological course of the country. in 1981 in his inaugural address within two minutes, reagan had declared that government is not the solution, government is the problem. today's inaugural address was a rebuke to that entire idea. this speech today was an ode to big government. it was a hymn to big government. in his refrain, the three "we the people"'s, number one i'm going to defend what liberalism acheered, medicare, social security, medicaid. i'm not going to let any of that be chipped away and secondly, he said the vision for the future, climate change and green energy, the new expansion of liberalism in the new century and then the third element was his expansion of civil rights, where he talked about immigrants and gays and shoe-horned to gun rights under the rubric of security. he outlined the liberal agenda, the big government agenda in the future. and brit talked earlier, remarkably there's absenc
